Unread Tab

Since your changes today when I enter an observation from those listed under the Unread Tab I no longer see said tab at the top of the observation. This forces me to go back to My iSpot etc. to get to see the unread list again, also the observation I have just read still appears in the unread list.

Thinking about ...

... it what I am seeing is the location link above the observation which is showing me Home>>Group>>Birds. Whilst probably technically correct it is still wrong as I came to it from the Unread list and I should have a one click option to get back there. If this is then not clearing the unread flag this would account for the observation still being in the unread list. My unread register could become infinite if this is the case, could be interesting.

Nearly right

OK the unread flag is fixed but I still have no way of going directly back to the unread list.

Still an Issue

I’m sort of assuming you have worked through any tech glitches from the site update (the removal of the unread flag(?) is now working) in which case the return to unread list must be a code problem, it’s very much still there (or not as the case may be) as an issue and I notice someone has posted the disappearance of the Previous/Next link which is another way of getting to the next unread observation quickly (a quirk of Firefox is it takes the back button too literally so it will show you the unread list including the one you have just read) but see my comment in the paragraph below.

I have to say I’m slightly surprised this is not being flagged as a bigger issue – how do other people navigate their unread lists if it’s not via the unread tab in My iSpot? The issue I have with using the carousel (or the Next link) is it gives you little prior information – such as if there are comments posted.

Ray,

We are getting on top of the bugs, but they have still not all been squashed yet!

Please bear with us!

Still Outstanding

This item is still an issue. I hate to be churlish but i would like to see the bugs fixed before pushing on with new developments .... if only because I know from personal experience that finding the minor issues later down the road becomes difficult/unviable/expensive whence they become a feature ;-)

Tabs

I can be dense at times! Just realised it is the tabs that are missing at the top.
